Seems a little excessive don't you think? What if you were simply just walking by the TV in the living room with no intention of playing a game?
It doesnt turn your console on, it signs you in if your console is already on and saves you the time in doing that. Plus it
recognises your controller so if you have a prefered button lay out you dont have to go in the options to switch it. It just knows its you. Its pretty awesome stuff. Its more conviences than anything else.
